Configuration Overview

Configuration Overview

This guide uses the term “preprovisioning” in the context of preparing or preconfiguring entities such as chassis slots, the IOM, adapter cards, ports, and interfaces, prior to hardware actually being installed in the chassis. These entities can be installed but not enabled. When the entity is in a no shutdown state (administratively enabled), the entity is considered to be provisioned.

Alcatel-Lucent 7705 SAR routers provide the capability to configure chassis slots to accept specific adapter card types and set the relevant configurations before the equipment is actually installed. The preprovisioning ability allows you to plan your configurations as well as monitor and manage your router hardware inventory. Ports and interfaces can also be preprovisioned. When the functionality is needed, the card(s) can be inserted into the appropriate chassis slots as required.

The following sections are discussed:

Configuring the IOM and Card Slot

Configuring Adapter Cards and Modules

Configuring Ports

Configuring SCADA Bridges

Configuring the IOM and Card Slot

The 7705 SAR card slot ID is always 1 and the card type for the IOM is always iom-sar.

On the 7705 SAR-8 and 7705 SAR-18, the CSM, which can only be installed in slot A or B of the chassis, does not need to be provisioned. However, the IOM, which is virtualized in the 7705 SAR software, must be activated before the adapter cards, ports, and SCADA bridges can be preprovisioned and configured. The IOM is activated by designating it a card slot ID and card type. This enables the chassis slots to accept the adapter cards.

This enables the chassi s slots to accept the adapter cards. Note: There are two versions

Note: There are two versions of the CSM available for the 7705 SAR-8: CSMv1 and CSMv2. In the CLI, the CSMv1 is shown as csm-1g and the CSMv2 is shown as csmv2-10g. Throughout this document both versions are referred to as CSM except when it is necessary to highlight differences between them. The CSMv1 supports a maximum bandwidth of 1 Gb/s per adapter card slot. The CSMv2 supports 10/2.5/1 Gb/s in the first two adapter card slots and 2.5/1 Gb/s in the remaining four adapter card slots. Support for 2.5 Gb/s and 10 Gb/s adapter cards on the 7705 SAR-8 Shelf V2 requires use of the CSMv2.

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 7705 SAR-F, 7705 SAR-M (all variants), 7705 SAR-H, 7705 SAR-Hc, 7705 SAR-A

(both variants), 7705 SAR-W, and 7705 SAR-Wx (all variants), have a fixed physical configuration and each router uses only one control and switching functional block, which is referred to on the CLI as CSM A. The CSM and IOM do not need to be provisioned in order

to provision the interface at the adapter card level.

The slot ID (1) is used as part of the adapter card and port identifier on the CLI.

Configuring Adapter Cards and Modules

This section contains information on the following topics:

Channelized Adapter Card Support

Provisioning Chassis Slots for Adapter Cards

A chassis slot and card type must be specified and provisioned before an adapter card can be

provisioned. A chassis slot is a physical slot designated with an MDA ID. On the 7705 SAR-8, the MDA ID is from 1 to 6. On the 7705 SAR-18, the MDA ID is from 1 to 12 for the MDA slots and from X1 to X4 for the XMDA slots. An adapter card is provisioned when a card designated from the allowed adapter card types is inserted. A preprovisioned adapter card slot can remain empty without conflicting with populated slots.

The adapter cards can be installed in the chassis in any combination that does not exceed the maximum number. However, network applications require at least one network-capable adapter card to be installed as part of the mix.

Once installed and enabled, the system verifies that the installed adapter card type matches the configured parameters. If the parameters do not match, the adapter card remains offline.

Configuration Overview

Channelized Adapter Card Support

The following cards and modules support channelization down to the DS0 level:

• 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card

• 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card

• 12-port Serial Data Interface card

• 6-port E&M Adapter card

• 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card

• 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card

• 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card

• 8-port FXO Adapter card

• 6-port FXS Adapter card

• 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module

On the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, and 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card (DS3 ports only), and on the T1/E1 ports of the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module, up to 24 channel groups are supported on a DS1 circuit and up to 32 channel groups on an E1 circuit.

The 12-port Serial Data Interface card supports a single channel group on a channelized V.35 circuit, RS-232 (also known as EIA/TIA-232) circuit, or X.21 circuit. The RS-232 ports on the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module also support a single channel group on a channelized RS-232 circuit.

The 6-port E&M Adapter card supports a single channel group on a channelized E&M voice interface.

The 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card supports a single channel group on a channelized G.703 (codirectional) circuit, an IEEE C37.94 teleprotection interface (TPIF) circuit, FXS circuit, or FXO circuit.

The 8-port FXO Adapter card supports a single channel group on an FXO circuit.

The 6-port FXS Adapter card supports a single channel group on an FXS circuit.

The 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card supports channelization at the DS1/E1 level only.

PPP Over Fractional T1/E1

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, and the T1/E1 ports on the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module each support fractional T1/E1 on a PPP channel group in network mode. Fractional T1/E1 allows one or more DS0 channels

to be bundled together (up to the maximum bandwidth of the network link), allowing the

customer to use only that portion of the link that is needed. This means that the PPP service

can use a selected number of timeslots (octets) in the network T1 or E1 link, thus reducing the amount of T1 or E1 bandwidth that must be leased or purchased from the attached carrier. This leads to multiplexing efficiencies in the transport network.

Only one channel group can be configured per port. When the channel group is configured for ppp-auto encapsulation and network mode, all timeslots (channels) are automatically allocated to the channel group. The user can then configure the number of timeslots needed. Timeslots not selected cannot be used.

Configuring Ports

A port can be configured after the IOM is activated (the card slot and card type are

designated) and the adapter card slot is preprovisioned with an allowed adapter card type.

The 7705 SAR supports the port types listed below:

Ethernet

TDM

DSL

GPON

Multilink Bundles

IMA

SONET/SDH

Voice

6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter Card

The 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card has four SFP ports for 1-Gb/s fiber or copper SFP transceivers and two SFP+ ports for 10-Gb/s fiber or copper SFP+ transceivers. The card also supports synchronous Ethernet timing. The 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card is designed to complement or replace the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card or the 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card in situations where greater processing power and higher throughput capacity are required.

The ports and features on the 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card are identical to the ports and features on the 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card, version 3, except that the 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card uses 4-priority-hqos schedulers for QoS instead of 4-priority or 16-priority schedulers.

8-port Ethernet Adapter Card

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 8-port Ethernet Adapter card (the 7705 SAR-18 only supports version 2) has six RJ-45 ports for 10/100BASE-T (Ethernet and Fast Ethernet) connections. The card also has two SFP ports for fiber or copper SFPs. Fast Ethernet and Gigabit (100 Mb/s and 1000 Mb/s) fiber connections and 10/100/1000BASE-T copper connections are supported. This variety of connections enables the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card to be connected to different devices at the customer site, including wireless base stations, DSL modems, microwave boxes, and other auxiliary equipment. As well, with fiber connections, the adapter card can be directly connected to the Metro Ethernet Provider (MEP) central office. Version 2 of the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card also supports synchronous Ethernet timing.

8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Card

The 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card has eight SFP ports for fiber or copper SFPs. The card supports dual rate (100 Mb/s and 1000 Mb/s) and Gigabit (1000 Mb/s) fiber connections and 10/100/1000Base-T copper connections. The card also supports synchronous Ethernet timing. The 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card is designed to complement or replace the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card in situations where greater processing power and higher throughput capacity are required.

There are three versions of the 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card. Version 1 and version 2 are identical except that version 2 provides larger table space for FIBs, ACLs, and so on. Version 2 also supports the full IPv6 subnet range for IPv6 static routes and interface IP addresses. The static route range is from /1 to /128, and the default route is ::/0. Supported interface IP address prefixes are from /4 to /127, and /128 on system or loopback interfaces. Version 3 is identical to version 2 except that it is equipped with a hardware-based encryption engine to support features such as IPSec.

Higher limits and full subnet ranges are supported only when all the adapter cards in a particular node are equipped with hardware for larger table support.

Gigabit Ethernet optical ports offer significant advantages over fast Ethernet ports, even where lower-speed services are currently offered. With Gigabit Ethernet, service providers have the opportunity to standardize access infrastructure, ensure that capacity is available to accommodate growing bandwidth requirements, and minimize the operational costs associated with future service upgrades to hardware and software.

Configuration Overview

10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter Card

There are two versions of the 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card. Both versions are identical except that version 2 is equipped with a hardware-based encryption engine to support features such as IPSec.

When the 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card (supported only on the

7705 SAR-18) is configured in 10-port GigE mode, 10 SFP ports are available for fiber SFP

transceivers. In this mode, the card supports dual-rate (100 Mb/s and 1000 Mb/s) and Gigabit

(1000 Mb/s) fiber connections. The card also supports synchronous Ethernet timing.

When the 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card is configured in 1-port GigE mode, only one SFP+ (port 1) of the 10 ports is active and available for use with fiber SFP+ transceivers. The card supports 10-Gb/s fiber connections. The card also supports synchronous Ethernet timing. The 1-port GigE mode is designed for use in situations where greater processing power and higher throughput capacity are required.

The 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card also provides larger table space for FIBs, ACLs, and so on. The card also supports the full IPv6 subnet range for IPv6 static routes and interface IP addresses. The static route range is from /1 to /128, and the default route is ::/0. Supported interface IP address prefixes are from /4 to /127, and /128 on system or loopback interfaces.

Higher limits and full subnet ranges are supported only when all the adapter cards in a particular node are equipped with hardware for larger table support.

2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter Card/Module

The 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter card/module is used to connect to and from access

rings carrying a high concentration of traffic. Table 3 lists the maximum number of cards or modules that are supported on each platform. A single card can be installed in the

7705 SAR-8 and the 7705 SAR-18; however, it is strongly recommended that a minimum of

two cards be installed for redundancy.

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter card/module has two small form-factor pluggable (XFP) ports on its faceplate. The two XFP ports are for 10-Gigabit Ethernet XFPs. The card provides high processing power and throughput capacity and operates at 10 Gb/s for Ethernet ports and 2.5 Gb/s for the virtual port (v-port).

The 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter card provides larger table space for FIBs, ACLs, and so on. The card also supports the full IPv6 subnet range for IPv6 static routes and interface IP addresses on the v-port. The supported range for statically provisioned or dynamically learned routes is from /1 to /128. Supported interface IP address prefixes are from /4 to /127, and /128 on system or loopback interfaces.

The 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) module supports IPv6 on the v-port. The supported range for statically provisioned or dynamically learned routes is from /1 to /64 or is /128 (indicating a host route). Supported interface IP address prefixes are from /4 to /64, and /128 on system or loopback interfaces.

Packet Microwave Adapter Card

The Packet Microwave Adapter card has two RJ-45 ports (ports 1 and 2) and six SFP ports (ports 3 through 8). All ports provide 10/100/1000 Mb/s connections (when connected to an MPR-e radio, they are always in Gigabit Ethernet (1-Gb/s) mode). Ports 1 through 4 support Microwave Awareness (MWA) and Ethernet/IP/MPLS networking; ports 5 through 8 support Ethernet/IP/MPLS networking only. All Gigabit Ethernet ports provide the same networking feature capability as the 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card. For frequency synchronization, synchronous Ethernet and SSM are the mechanisms that are applied when using optical 1000Base-SX to connect to an MPR-e radio. When using electrical 1000Base-T to connect the Packet Microwave Adapter card and an MPR-e radio, Proprietary Clock Recovery (PCR) is used (a copper SFP is mandatory on ports 3 and 4).

7705 SAR-A

The 7705 SAR-A has two variants with fixed physical configurations. One variant supports both Ethernet and T1/E1 ports. The other variant supports only Ethernet ports. Both variants of the 7705 SAR-A have 12 Ethernet ports: four Gigabit Ethernet ports for RJ-45 connections or SFPs (10/100/1000 Base-Tx interfaces), four Gigabit Ethernet ports for SFPs only (10/100/1000 Base-Tx interfaces), and four Fast Ethernet ports.

the full link bandwidth).

DS1

ports on the card can be configured for either B8ZS (bipolar with eight-zero substitution)

zero

code suppression or AMI (alternate mark inversion). B8ZS and AMI are line coding

techniques.

2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter Card

On the 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, channelization is supported down to the DS0 level. To change port types, all ports must first be shut down. The ports can be configured for DS1 (T1) or E1 channelization. All ports on the card must be either SONET or SDH; there cannot be a mix of the two types. When the first port is configured on a card, all other ports on the card must be set to the same type.

The 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card also supports DS3 channelization.

7705 SAR Interfaces

4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter Card

On the 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, channelization is supported down to the DS1 level. To change port types, all ports must first be shut down. The ports can be configured for DS1 (T1) or E1 channelization in access mode, or MLPPP in network mode. All ports on the card must be either SONET or SDH; there cannot be a mix of the two types. When the first port is configured on a card, all other ports on the card must be set to the same type. Switching between port types causes the adapter card to reset.

4-port DS3/E3 Adapter Card

The 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card has four TDM DS3/E3 ports. The port type must be

configured to be either DS3 or E3. Each DS3 port can be clear channel or channelized down to DS0 (64 kb/s). E3 ports can be clear channel only. Once the first port type has been configured, all other ports on the same 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card must be set to the same type.

To change between types, the ports must first be deleted. DS3 ports provide B3ZS (bipolar

with three-zero substitution) zero code suppression and E3 ports provide HDB3 (high density

bipolar of order 3) zero code suppression. B3ZS and HDB3 zero code suppression are line

coding techniques.

Channelization is supported down to the DS0 level (for DS3 ports only). To change port types, all ports must first be shut down. The ports can be configured for DS1 (T1) or E1 operation. All ports on the card must be either T1 or E1; there cannot be a mix of the two types. When the first port is configured on a card, all other ports on the card must be set to the same type.

8-port Voice & Teleprotection Card

On the 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card, channelization is supported down to the DS0 level. To change port types, all ports must first be shut down. The ports can be configured for DS1 (T1) or E1 operation. All ports on the card must be either T1 or E1; there cannot be a

mix of the two types. When the first port is configured on a card, all other ports on the card

must be set to the same type.

Channelization is supported on the two codirectional G.703 ports and two IEEE C37.94 teleprotection interface ports.

Configuration Overview

12-port Serial Data Interface Card

The 12-port Serial Data Interface card has four connectors, which support three serial data ports each. Each port grouping may be configured for V.35, RS-232, or X.21 operation. When

a port has been configured for a specific interface type, the other two ports in that same grouping can only be configured for the same type.

Channelization on the 12-port Serial Data Interface card is supported down to the DS0 level.

4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination Module

T1/E1 ports on the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module (supported on the 7705 SAR-H) support channelization down to the DS0 level. To change port types, all ports must first be shut down. The ports can be configured for DS1 (T1) or E1 operation. All ports on the module must be either T1 or E1; there cannot be a mix of the two types. When the first port is configured on a module, all other ports on the card must be set to the same type.

7705

SAR-A

 

The 7705 SAR-A has two variants with fixed physical configurations. One variant supports both Ethernet and T1/E1 ports. The other variant supports only Ethernet ports. The variant that supports T1/E1 ports includes eight RJ-45 T1/E1 ports. All ports must be configured as either T1 or E1 ports; a mix of T1 and E1 ports is not allowed.

DS1 (T1) ports on the chassis can be configured for either B8ZS (bipolar with eight-zero substitution) zero code suppression or AMI (alternate mark inversion). B8ZS and AMI are line coding techniques.

7705

SAR-F

7705 SAR-M

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 7705 SAR-M has a fixed physical configuration that has four variants. Two variants have 16 RJ-45 T1/E1 ports. All ports must be configured as either T1 or E1 ports; a mix of T1 and E1 ports is not allowed.

DS1 (T1) ports on the chassis can be configured for either B8ZS (bipolar with eight-zero substitution) zero code suppression or AMI (alternate mark inversion). B8ZS and AMI are line coding techniques.

DSL

 

The 6-port DSL Combination module and the 8-port xDSL module (supported on the 7705 SAR-M), and two variants of the 7705 SAR-Wx support DSL.

The 6-port DSL Combination module has six RJ-11 ports on its faceplate. Four of the RJ-11 ports support G.SHDSL.bis pairs, and two RJ-11 ports support xDSL operating in ADSL2,ADSL2+, or VDSL2 mode with no intermixing of DSL types.

The 8-port xDSL module has eight RJ-11 ports on its faceplate that support ADSL2, ADSL2+, or VDSL2 mode with no intermixing of DSL types.

The 7705 SAR-M views the Ethernet link on a DSL module as an Ethernet port. Any services on the 7705 SAR that are supported on an Ethernet port are also supported on the Ethernet link on a DSL module.

Two variants of the 7705 SAR-Wx support one 4-pair xDSL port.

GPON

The GPON module is a single-port optical network terminal (ONT) that integrates passive optical network (PON) capabilities into the 7705 SAR-M. The GPON module serves as an Ethernet Layer 2 connection point for receiving data from and transmitting data into a GPON network.

The GPON module connects to the 7705 SAR-M as a Gigabit Ethernet port. From an operational perspective, the 7705 SAR-M views the module as one of its Ethernet ports.

Configuration Overview

Multilink Bundles

The 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, and

T1/E1 ports on the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module support multilink bundles.

A multilink bundle is a collection of channels on channelized ports that physically reside on

the same adapter card.

All member links of an MLPPP group must reside on the same T1/E1 ASAP card, or the same port on a 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, or 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module, and they must be of the same type (either E1 or DS1). Multilink bundles are used by providers who offer either bandwidth-on-demand services or fractional bandwidth (DS3) services. Multilink bundles are supported over PPP channels (MLPPP).

IMA

The 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, and the 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card support Inverse Multiplexing over ATM (IMA). IMA

is a standard developed to address the increasing need for bandwidth greater than the DS1 or

E1 link speeds (1.544 or 2.048 Mb/s, respectively) but less than higher link speeds such as DS3 (44.736 Mb/s). IMA combines the transport bandwidth of multiple DS1 or E1 channels

in a logical link (called an IMA group) to provide scalable bandwidth.

SONET/SDH

The 4-port OC3/STM1 Clear Channel Adapter card has four hot-pluggable SFP-based ports that can be independently configured to be SONET (OC3) or SDH (STM1). The 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card has two hot-pluggable SFP-based ports that can be configured to be SONET (OC3) or SDH (STM1). The 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card has four hot-pluggable SFP-based ports that can be configured to be SONET (OC3) or SDH (STM1).

All ports must be of the same type (either SONET or SDH).

Voice

Voice ports are supported on the following cards:

6-port E&M Adapter Card

8-port Voice & Teleprotection Card

8-port FXO Adapter Card

6-port FXS Adapter Card

6-port E&M Adapter Card

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 6-port E&M Adapter card has six RJ-45 ports that support the transport of an analog voiceband signal between two analog devices over a digital network. The analog signals are converted into a 64 kb/s digital Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) format using either Mu-Law (North America) or A-Law (Rest of World) companding. The type of companding is selectable on a per-card basis. Companding conversion (that is, Mu-Law to A-Law or vice versa) is not supported.

The signaling type is selectable on a per-card basis depending on companding type. When A-Law companding is configured, the signaling type is automatically type V. When Mu-Law companding is configured, all signaling types can be selected; however, the only supported configurations are both ends of the connection operating in the same mode (for example, Type I to Type I) or one end operating in Type I mode and the other in Type V mode. The default signaling type for Mu-Law is Type I.

Each voice port can be configured to operate in either a two-wire or four-wire (default) mode. The ports (in groups of three – ports 1 to 3 and ports 4 to 6) can also be configured to operate in transmission-only mode, which provides a four-wire audio path with no signaling. A transmit and receive transmission level point (the analog-to-digital decibel level) can be configured for each port. See Table 4 for the signaling type, companding law and audio wires configuration options on the 6-port E&M Adapter card.

Configuration Overview

8-port Voice & Teleprotection Card

The 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card supports the transport of an analog voiceband signal between two analog devices over a digital network

The card has two FXS RJ-45 ports and two FXO RJ-45 ports that support analog voiceband signals. The analog signals are converted into a 64 kb/s digital Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) format using either Mu-Law (North America) or A-Law (Rest of World) companding. The type of companding is selectable on a per-card basis. Companding conversion (that is, Mu-Law to A-Law or vice versa) is not supported.

The signaling type is selectable at the port level on a per-port basis depending on companding type.

FXO supports:

• 1511profile1 (1511 Loop Start) – A-Law companding

• 3600ls (Loop Start) – Mu-Law companding

• 3600re (Remote Extension) – A-Law companding

FXS supports:

• 3600plar (Private Line Automatic Ringdown) – A-Law and Mu-Law companding

• 1511plar – A-Law companding

• 1511profile1 (Loop Start) – A-Law companding

• 3600ls (Loop Start) – Mu-Law companding

• 3600re (Remote Extension) – A-Law companding

The default signaling type for FXO and FXS is 3600ls for Mu-Law companding and 3600re for A-Law companding.

8-port FXO Adapter Card

The 8-port FXO Adapter card supports the transport of an analog voiceband signal between two analog devices over a digital network

The card supports analog voiceband signals through four RJ-45 connectors that provide eight Foreign Exchange Office (FXO) ports, with two ports supported per connector. The analog signals are converted into a 64 kb/s digital Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) format using either Mu-Law (North America) or A-Law (Rest of World) companding. The type of companding is selectable on a per-card basis. Companding conversion (that is, Mu-Law to A-Law or vice versa) is not supported.

7705 SAR Interfaces

The signaling type is selectable at the port level on a per-port basis depending on companding type.

FXO supports:

• 1511profile1 (1511 loop start) – A-Law companding

• 3600ls (loop start) – Mu-Law companding

• 3600re (remote extension) – A-Law companding

The default signaling type is 3600ls for Mu-Law companding and 3600re for A-Law companding.

6-port FXS Adapter Card

The 6-port FXS Adapter card provides the capability of transporting a large number of voice circuits from one 7705 SAR location and terminating them at another 7705 SAR location that is connected to a PBX.

The card can also be configured for a Private Line Automatic Ringdown (PLAR) application, which is typically used outside of a PBX network, in order to provide a site-to-site or remote site-to-control center hotline functionality.

The card has six Foreign Exchange Subscriber (FXS) ports. Each port provides a short-reach, on-premises analog interface to an analog telephone set. After an incoming analog signal from a set is terminated on one of the FXS interfaces, it is converted into a digital 64 kb/s Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) format using either Mu-Law companding (North America) or A-Law companding (Rest of World).

The signal is then mapped into the E1 Channel Associated Signaling (CAS) transport scheme for A-Law or the T1 Robbed Bit Signaling (RBS) transport scheme for Mu-Law and transmitted using a Cpipe over any 7705 SAR network interface that supports the Cpipe service. For standard TDM, the network interface can be a T1/E1 or OC3/STM1 channelized interface. For MPLS, an Ethernet, T1/E1, OC3/STM1 channelized MLPPP, or OC3/STM1 clear channel interface can be used.

For a PBX application, the signal is terminated on an FXO interface at a 7705 SAR hub location that is connected to a PBX. The FXO interface can be provided by either an 8-port FXO Adapter card or 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card that is installed in a 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 chassis at the 7705 SAR hub location.

Configuration Overview

For a PLAR application, the signal is terminated on an FXS interface on either another 6-port FXS Adapter card or an 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card that is installed in a 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 chassis that is located at a remote location, or terminated on a 3600 MainStreet or 1511 MAX. The connection is made over an E1 interface (3600 MainStreet or 1511 MAX) or a T1 interface (3600 MainStreet). A hotline call can originate from a 3600 MainStreet or 1511 MAX and terminate on an FXS interface on a 6-port FXS Adapter card (or on an FXS interface on an 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card).

Table 5 shows the configuration options available on a 6-port FXS Adapter card. The companding law type is configured at the card level; the other options are configured at the voice port level.

Microwave Link

7705 SAR Interfaces

A microwave link can be configured as a virtual port object on a 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 in order to provide a basic microwave connection or the Microwave Awareness (MWA) capability to an MPR-e node

For more information, see Microwave Link.

CLI Identifiers for Adapter Cards, Modules and Platforms

On the CLI, the adapter cards are referred to as MDAs. A port is identified using the format slot/mda/port, where slot identifies the IOM card slot ID (always 1), mda identifies the physical slot in the chassis for the adapter card, and port identifies the physical port on the adapter card; for example, 1/5/1. Adapter cards are configured at the card and port level.

On the fixed platforms, no configuration is required at the adapter card level in order to provision the ports.

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-A, the slot/mda identifier for T1/E1 ports is 1/2 and for Ethernet ports is 1/1. T1/E1 ports are identified as 1/2/1 through 1/2/8 for the variant of the chassis with T1/E1 ports. Ethernet ports for both variants of the 7705 SAR-A are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/12.

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-F, the slot/mda identifier for T1/E1 ports is 1/1 and for Ethernet ports is 1/2. T1/E1 ports are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/16 and Ethernet ports are identified as 1/2/1 through 1/2/8.

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-H, the slot/mda identifier for Ethernet ports is 1/1. The chassis has two slots for modules (the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module and the GPS Receiver module). On the CLI, the slot/mda identifier for a module installed in the first slot position is 1/2 and for a module installed in the second slot position is 1/3. Ethernet ports are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/8. Module ports are identified as 1/2/port-num for modules installed in the first slot position and 1/3/port-num for modules installed in the second slot position.

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-Hc, the slot/mda identifier for Ethernet ports is 1/1 and for RS-232 ports is 1/2. Ethernet ports are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/6 and RS-232 ports are identified as 1/2/1 and 1/2/2.

Configuration Overview

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-M, the slot/mda identifier for T1/E1 ports is 1/2 and for Ethernet ports is 1/1. For those variants of the chassis that have a module slot, the slot/mda identifier for the module on the CLI is 1/3. The 7705 SAR-M variants with module slots support the following modules: GPON module, 6-port DSL Combination module, 8-port xDSL module, CWDM OADM module, and 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) module. T1/E1 ports are identified as 1/2/1 through 1/2/16 for those variants of the chassis with T1/E1 ports. Ethernet ports for all variants of the 7705 SAR-M are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/7. Those variants of the chassis that have module slots identify modules as 1/3/port-num.

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-W, the slot/mda identifier for the Ethernet ports is 1/1. Ethernet ports are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/5. The 7705 SAR-W also has an internal (virtual) port used for in-band Ethernet management connection. The virtual port is identified as vrtl-mgmt on the CLI and as 1/1/6 via SNMP.

On the CLI for the 7705 SAR-Wx, the slot/mda identifier for the Ethernet ports is 1/1 and 1/2 for the xDSL port. Ethernet ports for the Ethernet-only variant and the Ethernet and PoE+ variant are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/5. For the variant supporting Ethernet ports and an xDSL port, the Ethernet ports are identified as 1/1/1 through 1/1/4 and the DSL port is identified as 1/2/1 through 1/2/4.

For the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, and 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card, the channel-group-id identifies the DS1 or E1 channel group; for example, 1/5/1.20. For the 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, the channel-group-id identifies the DS1, E1, or DS3 channel group. For the 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, the channel-group-id identifies the DS1 or E1 channel group. For the 12-port Serial Data Interface card, the channel-group-id identifies the V.35, RS-232, or X.21 channel group; only one channel group per port is supported on the card, so the format would be 1/1/1.1.

For the 6-port E&M Adapter card, the channel-group-id identifies the E&M voice channel group; only one channel group per port is supported on the card, so the format would be 1/1/1.1. For the 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card, the 8-port FXO Adapter card, and the 6-port FXS Adapter card, the channel-group-id identifies the DS0 channel group; only one channel group per port is supported on the card, so the format would be 1/1/1.1.

For the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module, the channel-group-id identifies the DS1 or E1 channel group for the T1/E1 ports (for example, 1/2/3.5) or the channel group for the RS-232 ports (for example, 1/2/2.1).

On the CLI for the 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter card or 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) module, for virtual-port configuration, an Ethernet port is identified as v-port.

Access, Network, and Hybrid Ports

All ports must be set to access (customer-facing), network, or hybrid mode. When the mode is configured on a port, the appropriate encapsulation type must be configured to distinguish the services on the port or channel (for access mode), or to define the transport mode (for network mode).

For the16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, version 2, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, and 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card, the card must be enabled to support a set of software services before the encapsulation type is configured. This support is enabled using the mda-mode command (see the mda-mode command in the Card, Adapter Card, and Port Command Reference section):

• access ports — configured for customer-facing traffic on which services are configured. If a Service Access Point (SAP) is to be configured on the port or channel, the port or channel must be configured as an access port or channel.

On the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, version 1, the encapsulation type can be ipcp, cem, or atm. The encapsulation type on the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, version 2, and the 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card can be ipcp, cem, atm, frame-relay, hdlc, or cisco-hdlc.

On the 12-port Serial Data Interface card, the encapsulation type can be cem, ipcp, frame-relay, hdlc, or cisco-hdlc. V.35 ports and X.21 ports at super-rate speeds (64 kb/s and above) support all of the above encapsulation types. RS-232 ports and X.21 ports operating at subrate speeds support only cem encapsulation.

On the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module, the encapsulation type for T1/E1 ports can be ipcp or cem. RS-232 ports operating at subrate speeds support only cem encapsulation.

On the 6-port E&M Adapter card, 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card, 8-port FXO Adapter card, and 6-port FXS Adapter card, the encapsulation type must be cem.

Configuration Overview

On the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card, the 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card, the 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card, the 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card, the Packet Microwave Adapter card, and the xDSL ports on the 7705 SAR-Wx, the encapsulation type can be set as null, dot1q, or qinq.

the encapsulation type can be set as null, dot1q, or qinq. Note: • The 10-port 1GigE/1-port

Note:

• The 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card supports qinq only on version 2 when it is in 10-port 1GigE mode.

• The Packet Microwave Adapter card supports qinq only when the card is not in mw-link mode.

• The 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card supports qinq only when the card is in access mode.

On the 4-port OC3/STM1 Clear Channel Adapter card, the encapsulation type must be atm.

On the 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card, the encapsulation type for DS3/E3 clear channel ports can be atm, cem, or frame-relay. The encapsulation type for DS3 channelized ports can be cem or frame-relay.

On the 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, the encapsulation type can be ipcp, cem, or atm.

On the 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, the encapsulation type must be cem.

• network ports — configured for network-facing traffic. Network ports are used as uplinks for Ethernet, ATM, PPP, and TDM pseudowires.

On the Ethernet cards, the Packet Microwave Adapter card, the 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter card, and 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) module, the encapsulation type can be set as null or dot1q.

On the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, and 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, the encapsulation type must be ppp-auto for PPP/MLPPP bundles.

On the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card and 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, the encapsulation type must be ppp-auto for fractional T1/E1.

On the 4-port OC3/STM1 Clear Channel Adapter card, 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, and 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card, the encapsulation type must be ppp-auto.

• hybrid ports — configured for access (customer-facing) and network-facing traffic. Hybrid ports can support access and network modes simultaneously over different VLANs. Within the span of a port, some of the VLANs can be in access mode and associated with SAPs for various services, while other VLANs can be in network mode and support any of the network-side operations, including label switching, IP forwarding (GRT IP routing), GRE SDPs, and so on.

7705 SAR Interfaces

The default modes are listed in Table 6. All channel groups on a port must either be all access or all network channel groups; there cannot be a mix. When the first channel group is configured, all other channel groups on that port must be set to the same mode. To change modes, all channel groups must first be shut down.

Configuration Overview

Rate Limiting

The 7705 SAR supports egress-rate limiting and ingress-rate limiting on Ethernet ports.

The egress rate is set at the port level in the config>port>ethernet context.

Egress-rate limiting sets a limit on the amount of traffic that can leave the port to control the total bandwidth on the interface. If the egress-rate limit is reached, the port applies backpressure on the queues, which stops the flow of traffic until the queue buffers are emptied. This feature is useful in scenarios where there is a fixed amount of bandwidth; for example, a mobile operator who has leased a fixed amount of bandwidth from the service provider.

The ingress-rate command configures a policing action to rate-limit the ingress traffic. Ingress-rate enforcement uses dedicated hardware for rate limiting; however, software configuration is required at the port level (ingress-rate limiter) to ensure that the network processor or the adapter card or port never receives more traffic than they are optimized for.

The configured ingress rate ensures that the network processor does not receive traffic greater than this configured value on a per-port basis. Once the ingress-rate value is reached, all subsequent frames are dropped. The ingress-rate limiter drops excess traffic without determining whether the traffic has a higher or lower priority.

Access Ports

Access ports on the following can be configured for PPP/MLPPP channel groups:

• 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card

• 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card

• 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card

• 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module

Customer IP traffic can be transported directly over PPP or MLPPP links. The access ports can also be configured for TDM to transport 2G traffic from BTSs or ATM/IMA to transport 3G UMTS traffic from Node Bs.

In access mode, PPP channels on the 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, and 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module can be associated with n × DS0 channel groups. Although multiple PPP channel groups are supported per T1/E1 port, all the channel groups must be the same encapsulation type. For example, if one channel group on a given port is set for ipcp encapsulation, another channel group on the same port cannot be set to cem. If MLPPP channels are used, an MLPPP channel group fills up an entire DS1 or E1 link.

7705 SAR Interfaces

The 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card supports ipcp encapsulation of PPP/MLPPP packets for transport over an Ipipe.

The data ports on the 12-port Serial Data Interface card and the RS-232 ports on the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module provide transport between two data devices. Each data stream that is transported across the network can be mapped into a TDM pseudowire (Cpipe) for transport across an MPLS network. The other end can terminate either on another 7705 SAR or a multiplexer capable of terminating the pseudowire.

The 12-port Serial Data Interface card supports frame-relay encapsulation of data on V.35 and X.21 channel groups for transport over a frame relay pseudowire (Fpipe) or IP interworking pseudowire (Ipipe). The 12-port Serial Data Interface card also supports ipcp and cisco-hdlc encapsulation of PPP and Cisco HDLC packets, respectively, for transport over an Ipipe.

The 12-port Serial Data Interface card and the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module can also be part of a system architecture where a circuit originates on an SDI port on the 7705 SAR, transits over an MPLS network, and terminates on a 3600 MainStreet node connected to a 7705 SAR over a T1/E1 connection. In addition to the MPLS network functionality, the 12-port Serial Data Interface card and the 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination modulec an also operate in a TDM SAP-to-SAP mode where the other SAP can be another port on the 12-port Serial Data Interface card or on a T1/E1 ASAP card.

Access ports on the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card, 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card, 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card, 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card, the Packet Microwave Adapter card, and the xDSL ports on the 7705 SAR-Wx, can transport traffic from sources such as e911 locators, site surveillance equipment, VoIP phones, and video cameras. The Ethernet traffic is transported over the PSN using Ethernet VLLs.

traffic is tran sported over the PSN using Ethernet VLLs. Note: For information on VLLs, refer

Note: For information on VLLs, refer to the 7705 SAR OS Services Guide, “VLL Services”.

A microwave link from a Packet Microwave Adapter card port in access mode can peer with user equipment such as a node B or MPR-e radio. The 7705 SAR-8 and the 7705 SAR-18 treat the microwave access link as a normal SAP into a service such as Epipe, Ipipe, or VPLS/VPRN.

Voice ports on the 6-port E&M Adapter card, 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card, and 8-port FXO Adapter card provide voiceband transmission between two analog devices over a digital network. A 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 terminates the voice circuit and then transmits the data over a TDM-based network interface (SAP-to-SAP) or an MPLS packet-based network interface (SAP-to-SDP). For standard TDM, a T1 or E1 interface is used to transmit the data across the network.

Configuration Overview

For MPLS, any network interface (that is, Ethernet, T1/E1 MLPPP, or OC3/STM1) can be used. The traffic originating from the 6-port E&M Adapter card, 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card, or 8-port FXO Adapter card can be mapped into a TDM pseudowire (Cpipe) for transport across the MPLS network. The 6-port E&M Adapter card, 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card, and 8-port FXO Adapter card support one TDM pseudowire per port.

The voice circuit can terminate on another 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 over the MPLS or T1/E1 TDM connection, on other TDM-capable equipment (such as a 3600 MainStreet node) over a T1/E1 TDM connection, or on other MPLS-capable equipment over an MPLS pseudowire emulation (PWE) connection. A 3600 MainStreet or 1511 MAX can also connect to an FXO port on the 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card.

Voice ports on a 6-port FXS Adapter card can be configured for a PBX application or a PLAR (hotline) application. For a PBX application, the voice circuits are terminated on an FXO interface at a 7705 SAR hub location that is connected to a PBX. The FXO interface can be provided by either an 8-port FXO Adapter card or 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card that is installed in a 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 chassis at the 7705 SAR hub location. For a PLAR application, voice circuits are terminated on an FXS interface on either another 6-port FXS Adapter card or an 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card that is installed in a 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 chassis located at a remote location, or terminated on a 3600 MainStreet or 1511 MAX. A hotline call can also originate from a 3600 MainStreet or 1511 MAX and terminate on an FXS interface on a 6-port FXS Adapter card (or on an FXS interface on an 8-port Voice & Teleprotection card.

SONET/SDH ports in access mode on a 4-port OC3/STM1 Clear Channel Adapter card can be configured for ATM (such as for 3G UMTS Node Bs).

The DS3/E3 clear channel access ports on the 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card can be configured for ATM PW services (categories CBR, VBR-rt, VBR-nrt, UBR, and UBR+MCR), for TDM PW services to transport 2G traffic from BTSs, and for frame relay PW service.

Access ports on the 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card can be configured for TDM to transport 2G traffic from BTSs or ATM/IMA to transport 3G UMTS traffic from Node Bs. Access ports on the 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card can only be configured for TDM.

All member links of the IMA group must reside on the same card. The 2G traffic is transported across the PSN encapsulated in a TDM VLL. The 3G traffic is transported using ATM VLLs.

For PPP/MLPPP channel groups, the encapsulation type must be ipcp. For Ethernet VLLs, the encapsulation type can be null, dot1q, or qinq. For TDM VLLs, the encapsulation type must be cem. For ATM VLLs, the encapsulation type must be atm.

H-QoS for Access Egress Ethernet Ports

7705 SAR Interfaces

To support hierarchical QoS (H-QoS) on second-generation Ethernet adapter cards, the 7705 SAR supports the configuration of one aggregate CIR rate for all the unshaped 4-priority access egress Ethernet SAPs on a port, thereby ensuring that all the unshaped SAPs can compete with the shaped SAPs on the port for fabric bandwidth. Use the config>port>ethernet>access>egress>unshaped-sap-cir command to set the aggregate CIR rate.

Third-generation Ethernet adapter cards have 4-priority-hqos schedulers which means that all SAPs are shaped SAPs. See Table 2 for a list of first-, second-, and third-generation Ethernet adapter cards.

For more information on H-QoS and on shaped and unshaped Ethernet SAPs, refer to the “Per-SAP Aggregate Shapers (H-QoS)” section in the 7705 SAR OS Quality of Service Guide.

Network Ports

For network uplinks on the 16-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 32-port T1/E1 ASAP Adapter card, 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter

card, and 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module, standalone PPP ports can be used

or MLPPP can be configured on a number of T1/E1 ports or channels. For MLPPP groups,

all member links of an MLPPP group must reside on the same T1/E1 ASAP card or the same port on a 2-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, 4-port OC3/STM1 Channelized Adapter card, or 4-port T1/E1 and RS-232 Combination module, and they must be of the same type (either E1 or DS1). The encapsulation type for MLPPP must be ppp-auto.

Ethernet ports on the 8-port Ethernet Adapter card, 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card, 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card, 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card, and Packet Microwave Adapter card can be configured for network mode. Ethernet uplinks can be used as a cost-effective alternative to T1/E1 links.

On the 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) Adapter card and 2-port 10GigE (Ethernet) module, the Ethernet ports and the v-port can be configured for network mode only.

A microwave link from a Packet Microwave Adapter card port in network mode provides a

network uplink to an MPR-e radio. The 7705 SAR-8 or 7705 SAR-18 treats the microwave link as a Gigabit Ethernet network link with MPLS always running over it. All standard MPLS/IP functions available on a network port or SDP are also available on the microwave link.

For network uplinks on the 4-port OC3/STM1 Clear Channel Adapter card, a clear channel port can be configured for POS to connect to the packet network. PPP can be enabled on a port by setting the encapsulation type to ppp-auto.

Configuration Overview

On the 4-port DS3/E3 Adapter card, a DS3/E3 clear channel port can be configured for PPP as the network uplink. The encapsulation type must be set to ppp-auto.

The 7705 SAR supports both copper and fiber uplinks.

Aggregate CIR for Unshaped VLANs on Network Egress Ethernet Ports

The 7705 SAR supports the configuration of one aggregate CIR rate for all the unshaped network egress Ethernet VLANs on a port, thereby ensuring that all the unshaped VLANs can compete with the shaped VLANs (that is, network interfaces) at the port level for egress bandwidth. Use the config>port>ethernet>network>egress>unshaped-if- cir command to set the aggregate CIR rate.

cir command to set the aggregate CIR rate. Note: The unshaped-if-cir command does not apply to

Note: The unshaped-if-cir command does not apply to Gen-3 adapter cards, such as the 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card, since it uses the 4-priority-hqos scheduler.

For more information on shaped and unshaped Ethernet VLANs, refer to the “Per-VLAN Network Egress Shapers” section in the 7705 SAR OS Quality of Service Guide.

Hybrid Ports

Hybrid ports are supported on Ethernet ports, where they provide the capabilities and features of access and network mode ports on a per-VLAN basis. The following services support hybrid port functionality: Epipe PW, Ipipe PW, IP-VPN, VPLS, and IES.

For ingress traffic, QoS and traffic management of a hybrid port behaves in the same way for access and network port modes. For egress traffic, per-SAP and per-VLAN aggregate shapers feed additional access egress and network egress aggregate shapers (dual-rate), except on Gen-3 adapter cards, where per-SAP and per-VLAN aggregate rates are single rate (PIR only). Refer to the 7705 SAR OS Quality of Service Guide, “QoS for Hybrid Ports” and “QoS for 4-Priority-hqos” for details.

Network VLANs on a hybrid port provide OAM down MEP support, as well as port loopback support (in line mode with latched timers only).

The following hardware supports hybrid ports:

7705 SAR Interfaces

• 6-port Ethernet 10Gbps Adapter card

• 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter card (version 2 and version 3)

• 10-port 1GigE/1-port 10GigE X-Adapter card (only in 10-port 1GigE mode)

• Packet Microwave Adapter card (only in Ethernet port mode (not mw-link mode))

• 7705 SAR-A Ethernet ports (except for the Fast Ethernet ports (ports 9 to 12))

• 7705 SAR-M Ethernet ports

• 7705 SAR-H Ethernet ports

• 7705 SAR-Hc Ethernet ports

• 7705 SAR-W Ethernet ports

• 7705 SAR-Wx Ethernet ports

In some scenarios, combining the access and network capabilities under the same port is beneficial. A typical scenario is shown in Figure 1, where a single port hosts both access-side services and a traffic management model together with network-side IP/MPLS routing and switching capabilities simultaneously.

In this scenario, a network interface is configured to ensure connectivity between the cell site 7705 SAR and the aggregation site 7705 SAR. The network interface is used for all IP/MPLS traffic and is bound to VLAN-1. Another VLAN (VLAN-2) is configured to bind the management traffic of a microwave radio (an MPR-e) to an access-side service such as an Ethernet PW or VPLS. For security reasons, many mobile operators prefer to transport management traffic of network elements under a service construct as opposed to basic GRT-based routing. To accommodate this preference, an access-side service and a network interface can be configured to coexist on the same port when the port is configured for hybrid mode.

MLPPP Overview

Multilink point-to-point protocol (MLPPP) is a method of splitting, recombining, and sequencing packets across multiple logical data links. MLPPP is defined in the IETF RFC 1990, The PPP Multilink Protocol (MP).

MLPPP allows multiple PPP links to be bundled together, providing a single logical connection between two routers. Data can be distributed across the multiple links within a bundle to achieve high bandwidth. As well, MLPPP allows for a single frame to be fragmented and transmitted across multiple links. This capability allows for lower latency and also for a higher maximum receive unit (MRU).

Multilink protocol is negotiated during the initial LCP option negotiations of a standard PPP session. A system indicates to its peer that it is willing to perform MLPPP by sending the MP option as part of the initial LCP option negotiation.

The system indicates the following capabilities.

• The system offering the option is capable of combining multiple physical links into one logical link.

• The system is capable of receiving upper layer protocol data units (PDUs) that are fragmented using the MP header and then reassembling the fragments back into the original PDU for processing.

• The system is capable of receiving PDUs of size N octets, where N is specified as part of the option, even if N is larger than the maximum receive unit (MRU) for a single physical link.

7705 SAR Interfaces

Once MLPPP has been successfully negotiated, the sending system is free to send PDUs encapsulated and/or fragmented with the MP header.

MP introduces a new protocol type with a protocol ID (PID) of 0x003d. Figure 2 and Figure 3 show the MLPPP fragment frame structure. Framing to indicate the beginning and end of the encapsulation is the same as that used by PPP and described in RFC 1662, PPP in HDLC-like Framing.

MP frames use the same HDLC address and control pair value as PPP: Address – 0xFF and Control – 0x03. The 2-octet protocol field is also structured the same way as in PPP encapsulation.

The required and default format for MP is the 24-bit format. During the LCP state, the 12-bit format can be negotiated. The 7705 SAR is capable of supporting and negotiating the alternate 12-bit frame format.

The maximum differential delay supported for MLPPP is 25 ms.

Port Features

Protocol Field (PID)

The protocol field is two octets. Its value identifies the datagram encapsulated in the Information field of the packet. In the case of MP, the PID also identifies the presence of a 4-octet MP header (or 2-octet, if negotiated).

A PID of 0x003d identifies the packet as MP data with an MP header.

The LCP packets and protocol states of the MLPPP session follow those defined by PPP in RFC 1661. The options used during the LCP state for creating an MLPPP NCP session are described in the sections that follow.

B&E Bits

The B&E bits are used to indicate the start and end of a packet. Ingress packets to the MLPPP process will have an MTU, which may or may not be larger than the maximum received reconstructed unit (MRRU) of the MLPPP network. The B&E bits manage the fragmentation

of ingress packets when the packet exceeds the MRRU.

The B-bit indicates the first (or beginning) packet of a given fragment. The E-bit indicates the last (or ending) packet of a fragment. If there is no fragmentation of the ingress packet, both B&E bits are set to true (=1).

Sequence Number

Sequence numbers can be either 12 or 24 bits long. The sequence number is 0 for the first fragment on a newly constructed bundle and increments by one for each fragment sent on that bundle. The receiver keeps track of the incoming sequence numbers on each link in a bundle and reconstructs the desired unbundled flow through processing of the received sequence numbers and B&E bits. For a detailed description of the algorithm, refer to RFC 1990.

Information Field

The Information field is zero or more octets. The Information field contains the datagram for the protocol specified in the protocol field.

The MRRU will have the same default value as the MTU for PPP. The MRRU is always negotiated during LCP.

Padding

 

On transmission, the Information field of the ending fragment may be padded with an arbitrary number of octets up to the MRRU. It is the responsibility of each protocol to distinguish padding octets from real information. Padding must only be added to the last fragment (E-bit set to true).

FCS

 

The FCS field of each MP packet is inherited from the normal framing mechanism from the member link on which the packet is transmitted. There is no separate FCS applied to the reconstituted packet as a whole if it is transmitted in more than one fragment.

LCP

The Link Control Protocol (LCP) is used to establish the connection through an exchange of configure packets. This exchange is complete, and the LCP opened state entered, once a Configure-Ack packet has been both sent and received.

LCP allows for the negotiation of multiple options in a PPP session. MP is somewhat different from PPP, and therefore the following options are set for MP and are not negotiated:

• no async control character map

• no magic number

• no link quality monitoring

• address and control field compression

• protocol field compression

• no compound frames

• no self-describing padding

Any non-LCP packets received during this phase must be silently discarded.

T1/E1 Link Hold Timers

T1/E1 link hold timers (or MLPPP link flap dampening) guard against the node reporting excessive interface transitions. Timers can be set to determine when link up and link down events are advertised; that is, up-to-down and down-to-up transitions of the interface are not advertised to upper-layer protocols (are dampened) until the configured timer has expired.

Port Features

Multi-Class MLPPP

The 7705 SAR supports multi-class MLPPP (MC-MLPPP) to address end-to-end delay caused by low-speed links transporting a mix of small and large packets. With MC-MLPPP, large, low-priority packets are fragmented to allow opportunities to send high-priority packets. QoS for MC-MLPPP is described in QoS in MC-MLPPP.

MC-MLPPP allows for the prioritization of multiple types of traffic flowing over MLPPP links, such as traffic between the cell site routers and the mobile operator’s aggregation routers. MC-MLPPP, as defined in RFC 2686, The Multi-Class Extension to Multi-Link PPP, is an extension of the MLPPP standard. It allows multiple classes of service to be transmitted over an MLPPP bundle, with each class representing a different priority level mapped to a forwarding class. The highest-priority traffic is transmitted over the MLPPP bundle with minimal delay regardless of the order in which packets are received.

Figure 4 shows the original MLPPP header format that allowed only two implied classes. The two classes were created by transmitting two interleaving flows of packets; one with MLPPP headers and one without. This resulted in two levels of priority sent over the physical link, even without the implementation of multi-class support.

Figure 5 shows the short and long sequence number fragment format MC-MLPPP headers. The short sequence number fragment format header includes two class bits to allow for up to four classes of service. Four class bits are available in the long sequence number fragment format header, but a maximum of four classes are still supported. This extension to the MLPPP header format is detailed in RFC 2686.

The new MC-MLPPP header format uses the previously unused bits before the sequence number as the class identifier to allow four distinct classes of service to be identified.

QoS in MC-MLPPP

MC-MLPPP on the 7705 SAR supports scheduling based on multi-class implementation. Instead of the standard profiled queue-type scheduling, an MC-MLPPP encapsulated access port performs class-based traffic servicing. The four MC-MLPPP classes are scheduled in a strict priority fashion, as shown in Table 7.
